‘Gaela Erwin: Mother’

Gaela Erwin is a Louisville artist whose subject matter often times deals with self-portraiture in oils and pastels. However, the newest exhibition tells the story of her mother’s last days. “These very personal images, often composed in the style or format of neoclassical portraiture or saintly icons, fold the life of the artist into the history of art,” said Chris Reitz, gallery director. “In doing so, they transform the deeply personal and specific into the timeless and universal.” The exhibition is in collaboration with the show “Gaela Erwin: Reframing the Past” which is at the Speed Art Museum until Oct. 30.
